Mating Jacket

A white dinner jacket is covered with painted rectangles of color alphabet “text” to write out sentences which are male oriented come-ons, pick up lines, slogans, and macho self promotions (see translations used in jacket below)

The Mating Jacket references the “gendered” nature of colors and color vision. It is intended to mimicking the mating ritual of many species of birds. The male birds testosterone levels are directly related to the color of his plumage, the greater the level of testosterone, the more colorful his feathers and beak appear.

Further, the jacket also targets the human female directly, because of the nature of human color vision among men and women. Color blindness (a recessive trait) is linked to a gene that is passed along on the X chromosome. Women who posses two of these chromosomes are ten times less susceptible to color deficiencies when compared to men. Thus, women are more likely to be able to “read” the self assured verbal bravado that is on display, assuring one an adequate level of male testosterone. :)
